Principal's Message

Welcome to Mira Catalina Elementary School! It is our goal that each student experience success. The definition of success is different for every student. We are here to support and challenge our students as they work to accomplish their goals during their time here at Mira Catalina.

Mira Catalina is a special school where the faculty balances the importance of instructional rigor while also supporting the “whole child”. This commitment to the student body allows for our students to grow into well-rounded individuals. In the classroom our teachers focus on preparing students for the challenges of today while also looking to what tomorrow may bring. We emphasize creative problem solving and critical thinking through open-ended classroom instructional strategies. This balanced approach results in our students moving onto intermediate school as confident, compassionate, and knowledgeable young people.

Much of the success of our school is due to the ongoing support from our families and members of the community. Our PTA offers enriching activities for our students both during and beyond the school day. We could not provide the fantastic experience we do at Mira Catalina without the support of our wonderful PTA. We also receive support from the Peninsula Education Foundation (PEF) which supports our elementary music program, our Physical Education program, and technology support at Mira Catalina.

Our commitment to our current and future students is shown daily on the Mira Catalina campus from our teachers and our parent volunteers. Mira Catalina is a special place and we will continue to support all students by motivating them to be a "Superstar” each and every day!

Go Mira Cat!!
